Mongolians ate seaweed??

Where did they buy it?  Japan?  And then, what....carry it by donkey, or
something?  Or was this when they ruled China?

In Xanadu did Kublai Khan a stately pleasure dome decree.......

Okay....as for soaking the seaweed, um....when I make soup out of it, it
becomes thick enough to be almost chewy.  But then, after cooling, it thins
down enough to be resembling the original material, just mildly moist.  And
paper-thin.  Are you saying that soaking in cold water, it'll be safe to
eat?  And....like soaking, or just putting it in there a second?  20
minutes?  5?  10 seconds?
